Has Jose Mourinho turned the corner at Old Trafford? Probably not, although Manchester United’s comeback against Newcastle was spirited and showed that there’s some fight in the dressing room at the moment.
Paul Pogba was one of the architects of the comeback, with Alexis Sanchez scoring the winner and these players will need to be at their best to get something out of a match at Stamford Bridge.
United have already lost at Brighton and West Ham this season, conceding three goals in each of these games and they have also shipped three against Spurs this season as well as letting two goals in against the Magpies in their last game.
Surely this defensive malaise will be exposed further by a Chelsea side who put Southampton to the sword in their most recent outing, with Eden Hazard in the sort of form that wins players the Ballon d’Or.
The Blues are an 8/11 poke with BetVictor to win the game and that looks a fair price about a team who nearly beat Liverpool in their previous home match, with the defence looking very sturdy.
You can also get a nice price about Chelsea winning the game without conceding and we’re likely to see United chasing shadows if they do fall behind.
Hazard is in wonderful scoring form at the moment and the Belgian looks a nice price to score the opener in this clash.
